We report five eyes of five patients with late opacification of the intraocualar lens (IOL).Three patients had hydrophilic acrylic (SC60B-OUV-MDR, Inc), two had silicone IOL (Allergan SI30NB). Two out of the three patients with opacified hydrophilic acrylic IOLs had diabetes mellitus. Three eyes with opacified acrylic IOL underwent IOL exchange with hydrophobic acrylic IOL. Two silicone IOL patients had no visually significant opacification and were managed conservatively.
